Acadia National Park

Sand Beach will serve as our base for our first day in Acadia National Park. From here you have several hiking options. Take the leisurely Ocean Path Trail to hug the coastline and see the iconic pink Acadia cliffs up close. For more of a challenge, head up the Beehive Trail or Gorham Mountain for extensive views of the coastline and surrounding mountains. Or, for a great combo, you can do all three!

Day 5

Acadia National Park

Experience Acadia by boat, bike or hiking today. Your choice! We’ll set you up with a boat tour, bike rental or kayaking tour. Acadia is home to dozens of miles of old Carriage roads perfect for biking. Kayaking around the Porcupine Islands offers views of Bar Harbor and Frenchmen’s Bay. Or, hop on the free park shuttle and take in another hike. There are still dozens more we could recommend! We’ll dine out tonight in one of the many fine restaurants in Bar Harbor.
